Indeed, Fairfax was never quite an area marked by affluence but a home for the barely middle class. In comparison to most of other neighborhoods where Jews settled during the postwar era, the Jews of Fairfax were more likely to have a lower-than average median household income. They were also less likely to own a home and more likely to work in the clerical and sales fields.
